Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Major General Hossein Salami said that Tehran is well aware of conspiracies and anti-Tehran plots, and further cautioned that Syrian cities are an example of what enemies planned for the Iranian people.
Maj. Gen. Hossein Salami warned on Monday that separatists and traitors will never feel safe anywhere in the country because the Iranian nation will not tolerate any schemes to undermine their independence.
“The Iranian nation will not let enemies endanger security and stability at the country’s frontiers. There will be no safe place for anyone pursuing anti-Tehran plots,” he stated.
The IRGC chief highlighted that enemies have been waging various conspiracies and seditious plots against the Iranian nation since the victory of the 1979 Islamic Revolution, emphasizing that they want “Iranian cities to be in ruins just like those in war-ravaged Syria”.
Iranian officials say enemies that are infuriated by and try to downplay Tehran’s progress and success have resorted to evil plots to foment riots in Iran. They warn of the hostile scenarios against Iran, cautioning that the evil activities of the media outlets have been masterminded by think tanks in Washington, New York and a number of European countries with the purpose of destroying Iran’s achievements.
Elsewhere in his remarks, Salami said that enemies want “poverty” and the “collapse of the economy”, noting that “this is the sinister scheme that enemies have been chasing in Muslim countries, and of course, have failed to accomplish until now.”
The IRGC chief commander also pointed to the hegemonic powers’ anger at the development and progress of Muslims, stressing they employ all their political and strategic means as well as divisive and destabilizing mechanisms in order to keep Muslim nations divided and underdeveloped.
“This is the plot that arrogant powers, the United States and Zionists have long been pursuing. Displacement does not come to an end overnight. Our borders must be safe,” he continued.
Iranian officials say foreign intervention in the West Asian region would further complicate the situation. They stress that stability and security in the region can be achieved through cooperation among the regional states and in absence of outsiders, and the path of resolving problems runs through the regional countries’ capitals, not through seeking recourse to extra-regional forces.
In mid-May, Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Mohammad Baqeri underlined that signs of the decline of the US clout are visible more than ever before, and underscored that regional countries are definitely willing to have convergence and they will overcome artificial differences that are the root-cause of divergence among them.
“Today, many pundits maintain that the world is moving towards the establishment of a new order. After the dissolution of the Soviet Union, the United States declared a unipolar order and tried hard to establish it, but failed,” he stressed, pointing to the formation of a new world order.
Stressing that one of the features of the new order is that it would be region-based, the top general stated, “The hegemony arising from the unjust world system has become a pathological behavior for some powers … but the signs of the decline of the US power have been conspicuous for a long time, and we are sure that the new world order will not be based on unipolar hegemony.”
Iranian military officials have stressed that Washington has weakened to the extent that it plays no role in the West Asia region’s geopolitical landscape. They stated that Iran has defeated the US which enjoyed unrivalled hegemony in the region and the whole world before the victory of the 1979 Islamic Revolution, but after the revolution they were forced to flee the region.
Officials in Iran say Washington cannot go ahead with its plan in the West Asia region as its schemes are doomed to fail, and add that Iran plays a key role in the political decisions of the United States and the fate of the White House is affected by Tehran’s attitude.

Officials in Tehran have stressed that the Iranian nation’s progress has made it stronger compared to the past, while the enemies have grown weaker.
Tehran has repeatedly cautioned that any plan aimed at increasing US presence in the Middle East will only foment insecurity and instability and spread terrorism.
Iranian officials have repeatedly underlined the necessity for the settlement of the crises and problems in the region through collective cooperation among the regional states, and underscored that the presence of foreigners is harmful. Tehran has urged the neighboring countries to be extremely vigilant about any US-Israeli plan that clearly aims to disturb the stability and order of the region.
